US President Joe Biden will meet next week with several leaders, including the presidents of five Central Asian countries, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky , the White House announced tonight.

Biden will discuss a range of issues on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, including climate change, the war in Ukraine and security, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said.

At some point in the next week, Washington will also announce additional aid to Ukraine.

Sullivan did not specify whether that would happen during Biden’s meeting with Zelensky next Thursday at the White House.

The Ukrainian president will also hold talks with both Republican and Democratic leaders during his stay in Washington. This will be Zelensky’s second visit to the White House since the start of the war in February 2022 and will come at what Sullivan called a “critical time” as Ukraine seeks to make more progress in its counteroffensive against Russian forces.
